sysreport issues sysrq-t by default - this is dangerous
Last modified: 2007-12-27 08:25:22 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #348981 +++
Description of problem:
Sysreport in HREL 5.0 issues sysrq-t by default
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run sysreport command with no options
Sysreport runs and echos "t" to /proc/sysrq-trigger and other sysrq commands
Sysrq-t should not be issued by default
This went in as a feature but it's really a regression. Issuing sysrq should
only be done in specific circumstances. It should not be done as a routine
practice when sysreport is normally run. Sysrq-t can cause a large variety of
problems including applicaiton failover, scsi resets/timeouts, bonding failover,
and application hangs.

it seems a critical bug. We should probably release the fix.

Suggesting for RHEL-3.9 and giving Devel ACK as the fix is simple and important.
Read ya, Phil

QA ACK for RHEL 3.
I think this is actually sysreport not sos
Actually I think this is a dup of bug 232920
